Its importance in the Forgotten Realms is based on the fact that the names of several of the drow noble houses of this city, which is detailed in the AD&D module D3 Vault of the Drow, republished and expanded in the Queen of the Spiders campaign adventure, are mentioned in the 1991 Forgotten Realms publication FOR2 The Drow of the Underdark.
Behind the scenesEdit
Interestingly, in Eric's first draft of DDGttU, he intended Sschindylryn's Gate to lead to the drow city of Erelhei Cinlu on Oerth - creating an FR/GH crossover. This was in response to the fact that there was a listing of several Greyhawk drow cities and noble houses in Ed's The Drow of the Underdark. This attempt to fix a Realmslore contradiction however didn't get through the editing process. Candlekeep Forums Moderator
